    This restaurant is new and slick, but very, very loud. The food is fine but, for what it is, pretty pricey. I'm not sure I'll go back.

    Half the table got their food 10 minutes before the other half. Waitress did a great job with water service, but split the checks horrendously, after waiting 15 minutes for getting them after asking for the check. One couple paid $50 while another paid $80 while another paid $105.

    As a vegan I struggle to find great food on date night, and their curry dish was outstanding! And, labeled as vegan is an extra special touch that I appreciate.

    Great food, fun spot! Creative, delicious food was enjoyed by all. Very good service. Our family of b5 loved the kale salad, butternut squash ravioli, cob salad, turkey pastrami sandwich and chicken katsu sandwich. Dessert was also delicious... Banana thing stole the show with delicious flavor and texture .

    First time coming out to culinary dropout, no fault of theirs but parking was almost impossible to find, reservations were quick to seat us, beautiful place to kick it with friends. As far as service it was OUTSTANDING our waitress was one of the nicest I’ve met, don’t recall her name but little blonde girl super cool!! The manager was also very professional and very attentive to our issues, a little busy so we waited a little longer to get our orders taken… when it comes to the food it was pretty BAD, wings were not very delectable, soup was super salty enough to kill COVID, steak frites was better but not good. Overall it’s perfect for drinks and friends lots of laughs, not for date night!!!

    This is a great place to dine. Great food, great cocktails, excellent service. Unless you are a small quiet group seated in the enclosed patio. Unfortunately we were seated there despite having made reservations. It is so loud. We were right next to the kids play area with about a dozen screaming children. On top of loud music and about 6 televisions and very loud people (parents of the kids). If you are a parent with small kids in a group, this area is perfect for you. But for us, two adults with our adult daughter. It sucked. I honestly don’t think I’ll go back in case I’m put in that section again. The actual inside restaurant is wonderful. Quiet, warm, calm. But as I said, they did not seat us there despite many open tables. Had I realized how bad it would be, I would have asked to be seated inside but we decided to stick it out and it sucked.

    Had the fried chicken plate & it was amazing! Crispy & salty & moist! The biscuit was heaven. Accompanied by a side of cole slaw & mashed potatoes for a completely delicious experience! Definitely going back soon! So many other great-looking food options & love the ambiance!

    I really used to like this place, but the last 2 times we’ve dined here the food has not been up to their usual standards. This time, we had to send back our French dip and pizza because they were both burned. Our 2nd orders were just as burned. An employee tried to say the ciabatta often comes out like that. I’ve had her sandwich at least 20 times, it doesn’t just come that way. My trout was dry. After this latest experience, we are going to stop coming here.

    Good food. Fried chicken was just a little on the salty side and the fish and chips had small pieces of fish for the price. Would go back but pricey restaurants like this are on the 1-2 times a year kind of places.
